Patient Comments (4)
in South Burlington, VT |
I had a piece of metal puncture my eye and damage the retina. Although he repaired the retina, he thoroughly obliterated the sulcus, needlessly, leaving no decent attachment point for an IOL implant. This forced my next surgeon to suture the iol to the iris, a much more difficult task which was not successful. He is ham-handed, to say the least.

Very current in his field. His experience and knowledge are apparent and his explanations are clear and thoughtful. He chooses his words carefully to convey the facts of the situation. He actually reversed a diagnosis he had made many years before based on new information. Highly thought of and respected in the Vermont medical community. He also is in contact with colleagues at other institutions such as Mass Eye & Ear, etc.

I was recommended by Dr Larson. After my exam, Dr Weissgold did a procedure for a tear in the retina on a Fri evening. This procedure was done after he was able to take care of his booked patients. Dr Weissgold saw me the following Sat morning for a follow up visit. He explained very thoroughly everything that I should know. I have a great respect for this Dr. I would recommend him to any one.

Even with an appointment I had to wait over three hours to get a 5 minute hasted examn.
